    It's so lovely. I've never taken a pair of scissors to Sky's tail and it grows sooo slowly. His old owner had me pull his mane so it's all short and awkward length atm as it's growing out.

    One day! *shakes fist* It will be long and beautiful

    have you tried MTG? Tim gets dandruff in his tail and makes him really itchy and he rubbed the top of his tail really bad. So I tried the MTG stuff and it actually worked pretty good

    MTG can really attract dirt. I quit using it because of that. I'd rather have a white less long tail than a really long dirty one.

    Super jealous of those thick tails! I can't get my guys to grow them at all.

    Dani with her pitiful tail. It used to be the thickest one in the barn & then she knocked it all off last year (or the year before). It just hasn't grown back thick since then.



    She does have a thick mane that I like to keep at least neatly trimmed!



    Lily, the fat Arab who was NOT blessed by the Arab hair gods. Except when it comes to her Afro of a mane. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it laying down, but this one kinda shows how thick it is. Won't even post pictures of her tail because it's pitiful.



    And now for Sonny who experienced a hair tragedy this fall. Since I'm away at school I can't be there all the time to handle issues & they're left to my fairly inexperienced barn rat. Well Sonny stuck his head in some burrs and had a HUGE ball of them that consisted of his forelock & the front of his mane. (he has the longest forelock too. Thick & beautiful *sigh*) My barn rat's genius idea? Cut them out. So he now kinda has a Mohawk in the front of his head. AS WELL as quite a few inches missing from his tail, because he had burrs there as well. I just laughed, and laughed, and laughed...



    Riders aren't me, they're barn rat & friends - so no crit on anything.
